if you want to go crazy, take a look at some of the TN, GA and AL fish photo sites. The they have pumpkinseeds there as well, on top of greens, long ears, red ears, yellow bellies and warmouth, and they take their rock bass vs. shadow bass vs. redeye bass identifications very seriously.

Growing up, my dad and I used to fish bedding crappie and warmouth from a boat in the top of Canyon Lake, so sorting black crappie and warmouth was my first exercise in taxonomy.

The guides were Chris Jackson, Keven Stubbs, Jeff Davis, Banning Collins, and a couple of their friends.
I talked to Jeff today and he said they got some fishing in and caught a good amount of trout. He was surprised how many they caught, the size of them and how cool the water was for this time of year. That's some good news.

Check out this site.........

It shows many of the sunfish family..... Although, their Redbreast and Longears look different from we are accustomed to seeing.

Jimbo, the photos also show how remarkably the strains vary in different watersheds.

I heard that pretty soon the medical communities will be giving out perscriptions for various SSRIs when they heare we fly fish.... :wink:

If it wasnt for the boderline-obsession that many of us have with flyfishing (rod building, fly tying, reel collecting), we "might" have to obsess over work.. :evil:

my wife and kids would get too much attention if I gave up fly fishing! They'd end up horribly spoiled....
